    When you start the PC tap F8 to get to your boot menu (not the Bios) then choose the normal usb stick option, the one that does not have UEFI in it`s description.

    You can then do a legacy install of W10

    I have.

    If you are only going to do Legacy MBR installs then go into then Bios and set it to Legacy boot only, if it has that option.

    I have mine set to Legacy & UEFI and always install in Legacy mode on a MBR drive, I see no advantage to UEFI and I like having 1 partition.

    You can see here the 2 choices the boot menu gives me for the Lexar usb stick, one choice is UEFI (at the top of the list) the other choice is for a Legacy install (5th on the list)

    Choose that to do a Legacy install.
